Hotel Sol e Mar

Hotel Sol e Mar, Albufeira Portugal

★   ★   ★    ★

As near to the sea as it gets in this resort and with easy access to the old town which becomes busy during the day with the influx of incoming day trippers. The property overflows with authentic Portuguese atmosphere and although there is no pool on site the sea shore is only few steps away.

Exterior

A modern and unexciting 6-storey building with recessed balconies, most of which enjoy uninterrupted views across the ocean. The main entrance on a sloping area at the rear of the building.

Property type: Hotel

Balcony/Terrace: All rooms

Interior

The interior is noticeably smarter than the exterior and provides many comfortable corners for relaxation away from the hubbub outside.

A functional looking lobby has a small but welcoming reception desk and a small bar has comfortable seating around the servery area.

Sweeping ocean views are enjoyed from the picture windows and a breakfast room is distinctly Portuguese with its many tiled murals. A coffee shop and an amenable a-la-carte restaurant add to the classic atmosphere.
